New Library Service Beginning this Fall!

 The Annapolis Valley Regional Library is proud to announce an exciting new service for our rural patrons beginning this fall.  Three satellite library sites will be set up in hub locations across the Valley as a pilot project.  These sites are in Summerville, Springfield, and Bear River.

The satellite library sites will be open to the public for four hours every three weeks, afternoon and early evening, increasing the convenience of library access to remote communities not served by a branch library.  Patrons can pick up books they have requested, return items, and browse for great books to read and movies to watch.

Library patrons can search our online catalogue of over 200,000 items to request materials.  Or call our toll free number 1-866-922-0229 ext. 234 and we'll be happy to help you with your reading needs!

So bring your library card and come meet with the staff of the Outreach Services Department at the Springfield Baptist Church on these Mondays from 3:00 – 7:00 PM:  Sept. 17, Oct. 9, Oct. 29, Nov. 19 and Dec. 10. Or try the Oakdene Center in Bear River on these Tuesdays from 3:00 – 7:00 PM: Oct. 2, Oct. 23, Nov. 13 and Dec. 4. In West Hants County the satellite site will be in the Avon Emporium in Summerville on these Tuesdays from 2:00 – 6:00 PM: Sept. 25, Oct. 16, Nov. 6, Nov. 27 and Dec. 18.
